Tyrrell's Stevens Semillon 2014

95 POINTS - JAMES HALLIDAY! 
93+ POINTS - WINE FRONT! 

 

“A famous wine in the context of the Tyrrell’s semillon portfolio, a wine of long standing and curiously - the only single vineyard semillon to be machine-harvested. It has a distinct citrus core allied with minerally acidity and responds well to lengthy cellaring." - James Halliday

 

"Perky young fruit driven nose, almost peachy, lemony and well rounded. It sports plenty of juicy flavour (in the context of Hunter Sem), fine acidity, and very good length. Crunchy juicy finish, that, when compared with the other 2014 Tyrrell’s Semillons, is slightly rugged and coarse; time will revolve such minor quibbles. Strong release. More to come." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front

 

"The Stevens “Glenoak” vineyard is situated on a combination of light sand and red clay soils. The vineyard is dry grown with the earliest plantings being 1911.

A semi-mature Hunter Semillon with a prominent citrus fruit profile. This wine already shows all the characteristics of a semi mature Hunter Semillon, with its wonderful balance between youth and age. A core of citrus fruit, with the palate just starting to fill out with some bottle age and the acidity beginning to soften into what is a seamlessly structured wine." - Tyrrell's
